Had a snack lunch here on Saturday. It was quite busy at about 1:00. The service was reasonably quick. The meals were a good size and reasonably priced. We parked in a free car park across the road, although there is a car park at the hotel.

Stopped on for a bite to eat after a long journey as this place looks lovely. Ordered the Brie sandwich which the menu claimed featured "roasted red onion and smoked tomato chutney" - yum! Except the red onion turned out to be raw chunks and the chutney was missing completely. To make matters worse, our sandwiches had clearly been left...

Dropped in on Saturday and choose the steak and chips from the meal deal range. To be honest I wasn't expecting much but I was so surprised with the quality and flavour of the steak. The staff were lovely, service was quick but the prices were just the job. Thank you so much, would recommend this charming place to anyone.

Warm, comfortable, & well furnished room in a welcoming hotel/pub with rooms. Excellent service, & a good menu for both dinner & breakfast with well presented food. It was a pity our steaks were a little tough! Convenient for Towcester races, & the Porsche Experience Centre.

I came here for a meeting for the northants/warwick air ambulance and the setting in the bar was very good. Very pleasant atmosphere with good seating. The staff were very friendly and the menu although I never had anything seem varied. I will come back again when in the area

Quaint hotel based right in the centre of Towcester with plenty of places to eat and drink in the immediate area if required.
